They have double the number of buildings that are 200+ meters. That will take quite a bit of time to surpass.

By 100m+ buildings the City of Toronto will likely move ahead of the City of Chicago some time in 2021. It will happen by 150m+ and 200m+ too but that will take longer. Perhaps 2025? If proposals are realized Toronto will zoom way out in front. In a few years NYC will be the only North American skyline left to reel in. A much tougher ask, of course.

There's also the 300m+ metric but the point is that, quantitatively, Chicago's big lead over Toronto has dwindled to almost nothing. Toronto will pass Chicago..... and in a few years. I suspect some are so used to Chicago's skyline being substantially bigger that it's incomprehensible that Toronto is on the verge of passing it. I might add that these figures don't include Mississauga and Vaughan and we all know there's a ton of stuff going up in both places.
